Hundreds of you have loved my Never the Bride series: from Always the Bridesmaid to Always the Mistress – and when the series ended in April 2021, so many of you were upset.
I’m sorry! Sometimes a series comes to an end, and though I will probably revisit the characters that we all loved, there’s a new chapter in my author life opening.
A new series: The Governess Bureau!
This is a series that’s been living in my head and heart for years now, and I am so relieved to start getting these stories down on the page! The Governess Bureau is an incredible series that leaves the ton behind and instead invites you into the castles, mansions, and stately homes of the great and good – but when you peek behind the curtain, be prepared to discover some secrets…
The first book, A Governess of Great Talents, is on pre-order now for just 0.99, and I really encourage you to grab it now because it’ll go up to full price once it’s launched – AND it’s almost double the length of my previous books!
Here’s the blurb for the book, and you can click here to grab it now…
Welcome to a brand new and exciting series titled The Governess Bureau from Best Selling Author Emily E K Murdoch!
When the nobility and gentility of England are at their wits end, they send a discrete note to Miss Vivienne Clarke’s Governess Bureau. Only accepting the very best clients, their governesses are coveted by minor royalty, with every governess following three rules:
1.You must have an impeccable record.
2.You must bring a special skill to the table.
3.You must never fall in love…
Book 1, A Governess of Great Talents
When a governess of great talents is required, there is only one place the nobility of England go, the Governess Bureau.
It was why Miss Meredith Hubert had worked so hard to gain her place there. Finishing with the Earl of Marnmouth’s children, she is about to be given her next assignment – a Duke called Alfred Carmichael with a political campaign to win and a half-brother who needs controlling.
Archibald is but eight years old, but already threatens to ruin the family’s reputation as Alfred, the Duke, tries to maintain it. They have to be spotless as the election looms.
But Meredith has a secret to hide, and she’s not the only one. Maids sent away in secret, items missing from the house, there is more than one mystery at Rochdale Abbey. When a Duke falls in love with a governess, there’s only one way this can end – in scandal.
As Alfred Carmichael tries desperately to regain his family’s honor in Parliament and fight his desire of Meredith, how will Meredith’s Great Talents ensure a happily ever after for them all?
